Please share the full mobile no ( you have shared 9 digits only)so that people can be aware about the same and block it. more  
I don't think so that GoIbibo played any role in this fraud. The said victim should've taken utmost care about the same. There are legitimate nos. displayed in the app or website. They even have mail & chat options. Also for refund, this companies transfer the amount in the original payment mode or the wallet. They don't ask where they need to transfer the refund amount. Most of the sites even display such warning messages which I believe most of the users chose to ignore. Please stay active. more  
Someone I know has been using Goibibo since 2008.Ibibo Group is an online Indian travel organisation founded in January 2007 by Ashish Kashyap. The company is a subsidiary of MakeMyTrip (MMT) Limited, which owns a 100% stake in Ibibo Group. Group owns the B2C online travel aggregator Goibibo, and online bus ticketing platform RedBus.in. Some one pretended to be an official of Pensioner's refund department and said I am eligible for a refund of Rs.3976.00 and confirmed my identity giving me my DOB, Aadhar Number, PAN and requested for my Bank Account Number. Since I never worked for GOI and I was abroad since 1981,I asked him to wait for few minutes since my account number is 16 digits and don't remember. Then I googled got the Pension Refund refund department and an official confirmed that there are no scheme of refund and a scam is prevailing at that time. SHOULD I BLOCK GOVERNMENT OF INDIA? Last week I got a call from the Credit Card Relationship Manager of HDFC Bank who identified me with my DOB, My mother's maiden name and advised me to redeem my Reward points which according to him is 29,975 and @ Rs.1 I am eligible to get that amount in to my credit card account if I give my pin number. Since I had my statement of September of the credit card and I knew the number of reward points. So I asked his name, employee number and location. He promptly answered. He also offered to transfer the amount in two instalments to any other credit cards which I hold. I gave the last four digits of another bank and I got an alert from that bank there is a suspicious transaction taking place and if it is not me should they "block" my account? I said Pleaseeeeeee" and they did. SHOULD I BLOCK HDFC BANK? Please also explain what was the modus operandi? You may even get a call from someone who will pretend as Governor of Reserve Bank or Chairman and MD of Ambani group. BE SMART, Do not drag names of legitimate business in to your kitchen chats. more  
Airlines companies should open their tickets booking offices at many places like previously. Giving to such private online booking people is to be avoided. Online services should be done only through the airlines companies websites. No bookings throug private companies. more  
Let the management of goibibo display alert in their website for the benefit of the customers. more
